I totally agree with you on Thundarr (and Kamandi the Last Boy on Earth also by Jack Kirby) and the unfulfilled promise of WarpWorld. I came across Warp World a bit after Time Lords, I remember sitting with a buddy and his wife at Ft Lewis in the mid 90's trying to make Time Lords characters (the players would rate themselves in the various attributes as you played "you"). We never did get past character creation although some of the art and the stories in some of the writeups for the play test characters were very evocative. Warp World was a disappointment, I didn't like the rules suppressing technology to be honest but I grew up with Gamma World (and The Morrow Project).A collage of backdrops from Thundarr The Barbarian cartoon. The dated quality of the animation can obscure that the show featured some great artwork and character designs.
Also, it's not itself that remarkable, the cover of Warpworld had a deep influence on my roleplaying for many, many years. The system was dreadful. It takes "overcomplicated" to a whole new level, the setting was the mess, but the illustrations spoke to me.
I could also post any number of panels from superhero comic books, but where would that end?
I played in an excellent Vampire: the Masquerade campaign themed around The Starry Night.
That is the greatest video known to mankind and could also be used as the basis for an interesting RPG campaign
Ruined city full of refugee mutants from a magical apocalypse. This is where the PCs, working for as librarians retrieving lost knowledge, are sent to recover what remains of a library. The mutants were generally shunned/hated for a whole host of reasons... but a most of that is just prejudice and fear.Could you share the elevator pitch, please?
I always took that for a tree. One of those pointy-topped conifers.
Suicide, seriously? I could have sworn it was a Victorian Space Age Karen complaining that their minority neighbors are lowering property values.
